    2.6 bowled'im, through the gate! That one pitched on length outside off, and it was the cutter from Starc, it came in after pitching and Gunathilaka's gap between bat and pad was too wide for the ball to sneak through 12/1

    3.1 bowled'im around the legs, is he? They are checking with the replays and it shows the ball touched the pad before clipping the leg stump. Lyon around the wicket, pitches it around middle and leg and gets it to turn a bit, Dilshan wanted to work it away gently with the turn but inadvertently exposed his leg stump and the ball got deflected off the thigh pad and onto the stump. 'See you, pal,' said one of the Australians while crossing Dilshan to congratulate Lyon 12/2

    26.6 loud appeal for lbw with the googly, he's got the big wicket of Kusal Mendis! Nicely tossed up on off stump, Mendis played for the legspin with the front pad in front of the stumps and bat outside the line, but the ball turns in enough to hit him right in front of the stumps. Easy decision, that one and a big breakthrough! 146/4
    24.1 Wade fails to collect the ball and misses the stumping! Chandimal came down the track to work the ball to leg against the turn but missed it completely! Wade missed it too after the ball clipped the top of the back pad and he now insists on using the review for lbw. Smith calls for the review. Replays show the ball is close to the inside edge of the bat as Chandimal tried to flick on the half-volley, but there's no HotSpot. Third umpire now checking for the rest - it's pitched on leg, it's going straight and it's hitting the stumps. Decision overturned and Wade pumps his fist! 137/3
    47.1 Faulkner strikes again, Mathews hits this one absolutely straight but long-off catches it just inside the boundary. It was full and straight, Mathews hit through the line but it lacked that extra distance and Henriques ran to his right to catch that safely 279/7
    30.2 that's number three for Zampa, good low catch from Smith at cover! Flighted as usual outside off, de Silva opened up and drove hard with a big swing, looking to go through the covers, but handed it straight to the captain 158/5
    45.6 loud appeal for lbw from Faulkner - both arms in the air like Akram - and the finger goes up! It was the slower one and absolutely full, hitting Kusal's boot as he tried for another reverse swat, but missed it, taking it in front of middle leg stump 261/6
    47.2 that's a hat-trick from Faulkner, he's knocked over the stumps now! Thisara made some room, Faulkner targetted the stumps and beat the batsman who tried to cut but the bat came down too late. And Faulkner, who does it so often in the slog overs, is pulling things back here. Don't forget his performane in the first ODI! 279/8

    48.1 he's hit the off stump, Starc, you beauty! He bowled that one from wide of the crease with the angle, targetted the off stump with some pace and Dilruwan showed his bat on the wrong line 286/9
    48.5 Starc takes his third, he's hit the stumps again and SL are bowled out! From wide of the crease again, right in the block hole and through the batsman to hit the middle and leg stumps! 288/10

    1.1 he's got Warner first ball! Nice and tempting line just outside off, Warner drives, the ball moves away just a bit and the edge is taken easily by Chandimal! Thisara is pumped and charges towards his team-mates to celebrate. What a big wicket tht is 3/1
    3.3 make it two for this Perera, he's got both openers out of the way! This one was not on hittable length outisde off, Finch went ahead with his slog for the leg side but only managed an inside edge onto the middle stump! 16/2
    9.2 is it the pressure that's got Smith, he's handed a catch to mid-on! Came down the track, took the ball almost on half-volley but failed to clear mid-on where Dilruwan took a couple of steps back to pouch it easily just over his head 41/3

    22.5 bowled him! Bailey's struggle is over for the night. Aponso slowed it up by giving the ball a lot of air, drawing Bailey forward into the cover drive. more of a slap really because he was not to the pitch of the ball. The ball then dipped on the right-hander, falling under his bat and skidded straight on with the arm, instead of spinning away, to hit off stump 102/4
    39.6 it's that man again - Thisara Perera - and he's got Wade off a full toss! He came down the track again, ended up sweeping a low full toss high on the leg side and Gunathilaka took one of the easiest catches at deep midwicket 182/6
    27.4 he's been stumped now! Prasanna drew Henriques forward with a flighted legbreak, the ball dipped and pitched in front of his lunge on the front foot and spun past the outside edge, the keeper took the bails off before Henriques could get his foot back in 118/5
    40.2 that's the other settled batsman to fall within three balls, Head top-edges one and Dilshan takes it! It was well outside off, hardly any pace, and Head opened up to pull it away to leg but ended up edging it high on the off side where Dilshan ran in from point 184/7
    47.2 flighted again, this time Faulkner is hit on the pad in front of leg stump, SL appeal and the finger has gone up. But Faulkner reviews it. Replays show no inside edge and ball-tracking shows it was 'hitting' the stumps. Australia all out for 206 206/10
    40.4 slow offcutter at 108 and second wicket for Mathews in the over with that return catch! Pitched it up and rolled his fingers a bit over that one, Starc merely pushed it back in the air and Mathews took it comfortably around waist height 185/8
    45.5 swept away to the leg side and he's found deep midwicket, third wicket for Aponso! It was pitched up, and Zampa went down on a knee to sweep it away nicely but it didn't go all the way and Dilshan had to run to his right to make it nine down 202/9
